As far as I remember a railway employee is the main character in Noboru
Nakamura's Shiokari Pass from 1977, and the title refers to a railway pass
somewhere in Hokkaido. As for amine, there is a well crafted train chase
sequence in Miyazaki Hayao's Tenku no shiro Rapyuta (Laputa: Castle in the
Sky) from 1986, and a short train scene in his Majo no takkyubin (Kiki's
Delivery Service) from 1989.
